30 Days of Self-Care Information and Strategies – Kristin Cowart, MSW, LCSW
For over 20 years, Psychologist Gabriele Oettingen has studied many people including dieters, students, job seekers, love seekers, people recovering from physical injuries and other strivers. What she found is those who have stronger, more positive fantasies about reaching their goals are actually less likely to achieve them. However, there is a way to reach more of our goals through a process called WOOP (Wish Outcome Obstacle Plan). Listen to WOOP There It Is! 4 Steps To Achieve Your Goals (21 min) for a more in depth discussion or watch What is WOOP? (3 min) for a quick overview. If this approach sounds interesting, you can practice online, watch additional videos or download a WOOP kit to try at home at How can I practice WOOP?
